Dell D600 Series Video Card Issue That Can Not Be Fixed?

We have a Dell laptop, D610.  We have tried to reinstall the video card drivers from the Dell site, but still get this error.

It results in choppy video and low resolution.  What can we do besides reinstalling Windows?

hi, are you sure you have the right drivers? If you can connect to the internet you can go to the dell website and you can use their assistant to find all the correct drivers. If there is nothing wrong with the card it self then you need to look closer into your drivers situation:

this is the uk site:
http://support.euro.dell.com/support/index.aspx?c=uk&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=mn 

if you are sure you have the right drivers then unistall it and install it again. I have found this of the microsoft website as well:
Code 10

If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string is displayed as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:
This device cannot start. (Code 10)
Recommended resolutions

Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

Update the driver

In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to update the driver.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.

There are 3 drivers for 3 different video cards for that laptop.  My guess is you installed the wrong driver.  Reboot the computer and go into the BIOS (F2 after you turn it on) and check the system page.  It may list the actual video card there.  If it doesn't, then go here

http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html

and download the freeware version.  Run it and it should detect the video card so you can determine the correct driver to download.  Make sure you uninstall the previous driver before installing the new one.

Hi .
I have resolved some issues before like this useing www.drivereasy.com.

Just Uninstall the device in decvice manager.

Do not let windows put it back on.

Just let driver easy pick up the driver first then uninstall the driver and then put in on with driver easy.

Try its FREE and very well fix your issue.

you can test if the video card works ok when booted from a live knoppix cd :
ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/knoppix/KNOPPIX_V6.7.0CD-2011-08-01-EN.iso 

if that works, you know the card - hardware is ok, and the problem is software
